We loved it, it was clean, a little more rough on the feet than expected because of the shells, and it was very busy with people. We couldn’t walk north on the beach from where we were (Postcard Inn) due to construction, there’s a gate...More

We went for 10 days in October. The beach is nice but it can be sore to walk on bare foot because there are shells everywhere. Sea is nice.

Everyone was super friendly in this picturesque setting. Loved the water, collecting shells and then ending up back by the pool. What a view!

Its a very large beach. Off season is the best time to go. Durring busy season it gets a lottle crowded. Good shops and food near by

Wide beach, patrolled by police. Low surf, great for wading. No alcohol. Rides and beach stuff available. Great kid beach. Shells in sand, bring flip flops

Laid back, clean and fun. Lots to do, including parasailing, jet skis and banana boats. The beach is clean and has shells but not too many. We saw dolphins while swimming, along with a starfish and crabs. Fun for everyone!

Lots of parking-sure it's not free but not a bad price at all. The sand is soft and the water is warm and clear. It's a go to of mine.

Plenty of beach bars with live music and amazing water. Also beautiful sunsets. I have been coming here over 45 years. My grandparents moved here when I was a baby.

Not sure of total distance. I walked 3 miles according to my phone, but did not go to the end.

Access to beach is free. Parking is not free. IHOP & chick a filet are right across the street. You can bring your own chairs and umbrella.
